I got my first package of bees – Minnesota Hygienics – on April 21, 2015, and I call myself a glorified cheerleader for my hive. Unlike many other new beekeepers that I have met, I did not spend the months before they arrived reading about bees or beekeeping. I got some essential beekeeping information from a few seasoned beekeepers, and I have let my hive teach me the rest! I have much, much to learn…
As I learn, I plan to post my experiences here, and I invite you to learn along with me. If you’re a seasoned beekeeper and have some advice or suggestions, I welcome your comments as well! They’re much needed!
This coming Saturday, I’m hoping to go to Moores Hill, Indiana where the Southeastern Indiana Beekeepers Association is hosting Mel Disselkoen, who will be demonstrating On-the-Spot-Queen-Rearing and natural miticide techniques. If you’re interested, you should plan to be there!
I hope you’ll join me on this journey!
